Tereora College’s cultural team made a successful performance at the ASB Polyfest for the first time over the weekend.

Forty-three students were included in the group that attended the 43rd event in Auckland and several support teachers also made the trip.

The group featured on the Cook Islands stage and performed on both Friday and Saturday.

To cover the costs of the trip, the group held a special fundraising evening earlier this month at the National Auditorium as well as a run-a-thon and individual fundraising by the students.

Polyfest features traditional music, dance, costume and speech and is recognised as an important showcase of New Zealand’s diverse culture.
